Hank Aaron honored

(WNFL)- Hank Aaron played for Bud Selig in his final two Major League seasons with the Milwaukee Brewers. And Selig -- who went on to become the commissioner of baseball -- hints that Aaron is still the game's home run king. The 80-year-old Aaron was honored last night in Atlanta, on the 40th anniversary of his 715th career homer which broke Babe Ruth's record at the time. Aaron retired with 755 blasts, a record that was later broken by Barry Bonds -- whose career was tarnished with allegations of steroid use. Many baseball fans believe that Aaron is still the real home run king. Reporters asked Selig if he feels that way, and the former Brewers' owner replied quote -- "I'm always in a sensitive spot there, but I've said that myself and I'll just leave it that." The Atlanta Braves honored Aaron in a pre-game ceremony last evening. Braves' chairman Terry McGuirk said Hammerin' Hank set the record quote, "the old-fashioned way." Retired Braves' broadcaster Pete Van Wieren got a huge ovation when he said Aaron is quote, "still recognized as baseball's true home run king."
